Remains of Chruch

Michael Walzer, Professor Emeritus, School of Social Science. This lecture attempts to answer multiple questions:  First, what is wrong with terrorism? The question may seem easy, but it is often answered badly.

Second, how is terrorism chosen - picked out of all the possible political strategies?  And third, how ought we to fight against terrorism?  Or better, what are the moral limits that anti-terrorists ought to recognize?
